6:01 am
time. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." more on our ride to work forecast. here's lawrence. >> yeah. looking good around the bay area not seeing the wind like we had yesterday. you're going to see a lot of sunshine into the afternoon. and just a couple of high clouds drifting overhead as high pressure now beginning to build in overhead, as well. still a little could toward the coastline. highs there only -- still a absolutely cool towarded coast coast, 50s and 60s. 60s and low 70s in the valleys. out over the bay looking good to start out your day. temperatures a little chilly though. 40s and some 50s this morning. some of the cooler temperatures we have had in a while. but by the afternoon, should be a very pleasant day about 68 in san jose, 67 in oakland. 69 in the napa valley and 70 in concord. that's a look at weather, guys. back to you. >> all right, lawrence. thanks. breaking news this morning in marin county where crews are wrapping up work on a two-alarm fire in novato that began around 3 a.m. in a garage of a home on chase street. the fire was mostly limited to the garage which was destroyed.
6:02 am
you see it here. two cars badly damaged in the fire. nobody was injured. the cause of the fire is under investigation. developing news now. a palo alto man remains hospitalized but is telling his tale about a rock climbing accident and the amazing rescue that saved his life. more now from kpix 5's cate caugiran who joins us from the newsroom. >> reporter: it's going to be a long road of recovery ahead for 26-year-old blake parkinson but you wouldn't be able to tell from when we sat down with him. parkinson and a few friends were climbing higher cathedral spire easter sunday. the stanford alum and employee is an experienced climber but says he was tackling the most difficult stretch when something went wrong. parkinson says he somehow missed a move, causing him to plummet 30 feet before the rope caught him but not before he broke his back on the boulders he landed on. >> i was carrying a water bladder and that exploded against the rock. and when i went to feel my back initially, i thought i was -- i thought it was my blood, which was a bit troubling. >> reporter: by the time his
6:03 am
friends got to him he was in bad shape. that's when a dramatic rescue took place that you're looking at now. but it took some careful maneuvering with the helicopter blades so close to the rock face. parkinson right now is being treated for spinal fractures. in time, he is expected to recover. cate caugiran, kpix 5. the mother of one of the high school students killed in that crash on i-5 is now suing fedex. a fedex truck hit a bus full of teenagers head on in glenn county and burst into flames. the mother accuses fedex of using trucks with a history of catching fire. she is seeking $100 million in damages. the 15-year-old boy who hitched a right in the wheel well of a plane to hawaii was actually trying to get to somalia. as linda yee reports, he was desperate to see his mother. >> reporter: sources say this is his footprint on the tire of the hawaiian airlines plane and the black marks, his footprints and handprints inside the wheel well where he spent 5 1/2 hours in subzero temperatures.
6:04 am
a source says tsa investigators were at the maui airport taking a closer look at the plane. one friend tells me it's no surprise he was able to get on to the tarmac at san jose airport unnoticed. >> he is a pretty athletic kid so it would make sense that he could be able to hop over a fence. >> reporter: classmates said he transferred to santa clara high just over a month ago. few knew him well, but no one guessed he would have hitched a right in an airplane wheel well. >> i thought it was a stupid move. but at the same time, i thought he was a genie for hopping in the wheel! [ laughter ] >> reporter: he got along with everyone. >> i went to mosque with him and seen him a couple of times looked like a quiet guy. >> reporter: maui police say the teen actually wanted to hop a jet to africa to find his biological mother. he lives with his father and stepmother in this house in santa clara but supposedly was having problems here triggering his desperate attempt to leave. no one in the family answered
6:05 am
the door. >> some people have it rougher than others, you know? >> reporter: linda yee, kpix 5. it turns out that young boy may have hid out at san jose mineta international airport for hours prior to take-off. kiet do joins us live now in san jose. the trip is putting airport security in the spotlight now. >> reporter: yeah. the airport director herself calls this a very serious incident. they say they are doing a complete review and looking for any improvements that they can make. it turns out he jumped a portion of the fence that has barbed wire on top of it that is near where the airplane itself was parked. the fbi now says that testifies on the tarmac for seven hours went completely unnoticed. the boy told investigators he chose the plane at random and had just got nene a fight with his dad and was trying to get to his mom in somalia. ground crews are supposed to do wheel well checks early on in the flight but it's unclear if they did so at this point. san jose airport has a good security track record and cautioned against a widespread
6:06 am
overhaul of all airports in the country. still, lawmakers say this highlights gaping holes in airport security. >> looking at our airports in general and taking a diagnostic i think would serve all of us well to make sure that only ticketed screened passengers are getting on planes. >> reporter: and they are saying it's a miracle that he survived a near complete lack of oxygen and below freezing temperatures at 38,000 feet for 5 1/2 hours. he is still in hawaii. unclear when he may be returned to the bay area. >> has the teen's family said anything? >> reporter: yeah. you know, we have been camped out at their house for days now. there are people inside there. when we knocked on the door, they are not answering. so no word yet. >> okay. kiet do live for us down in san jose this morning, thank you. it is 6:06. san jose police are seeking clues after a man was found dead next to a big rig in the parking lot of a warehouse on monterey road near curtner avenue. officers were called to the scene yesterday morning. they found a man in his 40s
6:07 am
gravely injured. emergency workers pronounced him dead shortly afterwards. few details are being released but investigators classify its as a homicide. the drought is prompting east bay m.u.d. to do something it's never done before. >> we will be drawing water from the sacramento river for our drinking water supply. >> this summer east bay m.u.d. will pay $8 million to acquire five billion gallons of water. that means the san pablo and upper san leandro reservoirs will be full of sacramento river water by the end of june with enough water to service 54,000 homes for a year. developing right now in south korea, rescue crews are diving into the wreckage of that sunken ferry looking for more victims. they have reached the 3rd and 4th floors where passengers' bedrooms were located. the number of dead has reached 10 knee with just as many people -- 10 people with just as -- 150 people are dead, 150 still missing.
6:08 am
experts searching for the missing malaysia passenger plane are looking at an object of interest that washed up on the coast of western australia. it appears to be sheet metal with rivets in it. but authorities say it's unlikely to be related to the missing plane. the search for malaysia airlines flight 370 is nearly 7 weeks old. and so far, no physical evidence linked to the plane has been found. it is 6:08 now. once upon a time stephen colbert couldn't get letterman to hire him. coming up he checks out his new digs. >> reporter: lions and tigers and bears -- an millipedes? our furry friends are here with a look at mobile weather. >> there is rain on the way. we'll talk about that coming up. >> and looking at the latest tweets now from the east bay, we spotted this one possibly an accident involving several cars blocking up to three lanes in hayward on 880. so we'll tell you how it's slowing things down coming up. but first we want to know what drives you crazy during your commute. ask a question or share a gripe

it looks like the sensors pick up some slowing around 238. but again you could see big delays towards 92. in petaluma tow crews are working to clear at petaluma boulevard south. you can see the sensors are pretty -- well, wow. they are in the red now. so even though this accident is in the clearing stages, expect good sized delays all the way through petaluma until you get past the petaluma boulevard south exit and then improving into novato. at the bay bridge metering lights are turned on around 6:00 so 15 minutes ago typical commute trying to get into san francisco. it's backed up beyond the 880 overcrossing. and if you traveling westbound 580 the delays begin up and over the altamont pass and now it's kind of sluggish so continued slow-and-go all the way past your isabel exit but bart is a good option this morning because so far all trains are on time.

6:32 am
50s and some low 60s toward the beaches. 60s in the bay and you will see some 60s and low 70s in the valleys. looking good out over the bay. the temperatures running in the 40s and the 50s so a little cool in spots but this afternoon, how about 68 in san jose? 67 in oakland? and 62 in san francisco. all right. time for a road check. let's check the roads with elizabeth. in hayward, chp is doing the final clean-up to get these lanes open. in the meantime, at last check two lanes were still blocked. you can see the delays approaching industrial. that's where the accident happened. anyway you're seeing red sensors as far back as 238 interchange so definitely give yourself some extra time. petaluma another hotspot. that accident in petaluma all lanes are now back open. but as you can see from this latest traffic tweet, the traffic jamups begin around pepper and we are hearing there may be another fender-bender in the traffic jam itself. here's a live look at the bay bridge. pretty typical stuff for this time of the morning.

6:32, you're backed up to the foot of the maze. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." back to you guys >> thank you. ten adults and a child out of their home this morning after fire damaged three buildings in san francisco. it started around 1:30 in the afternoon yesterday behind the duplex on walter street between duboce and 14th street. flames ripped through the roofs of one of the houses and spread to neighboring buildings. a firefighter was hurt when tar fell from the roof and landed on him. the fire gave neighbors quite a scare. >> hear people screaming saying like fire, fire, so a lot of flames and smoke and wind. >> that wind made firefighters' jobs that much harder. it took hours to get the fire under -- it took two hours to get fire under control. the santa clara teen who made it to hawaii in the wheel well of the plane hid out at the san jose airport for hours prior to take-off. kiet do joins us live now in san jose. that teen apparently tried to get home to somalia and his
6:34 am
journey now raising a lot of concerns about security at airports. >> reporter: yeah. now, we're learning now that this teen did not climb through a hole. he scaled a section of the fence that had barbed wire on top of it. a section of the fence just happened to be right near where the plane was parked that he was going to stowway on. the airport is conducting a review to see if there are any improvements they can make to security. a law enforcement official tells the "associated press" they are reviewing surveillance video that shows the 15-year- old was inside the secure area of the airport for about 7 hours. according to the fbi, the teenager snuck out on the tarmac, chose a plane at random and didn't know where he was going. he took a 5 1/2 hour flight to maui in the boeing 767 in the wheel well. it highlights what some lawmakers call gaping hole in airport security. >> looking at the airports in general and taking a diagnostic i think would serve all of us
